Word Attachments showing up unreadable in for recipient

We send a newsletter by email to multiple recipients and 
some people are unable to read the attachment.  The 
attachment shows up as mixed symbols and letters instead 
of the document.  This only happens with certain end 
users.  Most recipients can read it fine.  We have tried 
sending Plain text and Rich text with the same result.  

Have any ideas why this is happening?

Thanks.

problem with BOLD. ITALIC...using Word as editor
I compose a msg using Outlook. Word is the editor. I set a word in bold ot italic. I send msg to myselg, reading in Outlook. The bold or italic is gone. What to do? Thanks, Leo Are you sending the message as text only? If so all formatting will disappear. If you want to retain your formatting you'll need to send your messages as HTML.

Guid showing in title bar
I have a problem where the guid for an account shows in the title bar after the http://servername and before the account name when the account entity is opened. My test installation does not do this.

Windows XP: Open file in read-only: Word, Excel, Visio
I'm often sharing files on a network drive with someone. Often, one of us knows that we don't need to open a file for modification, and we only need read-access. Is there a way to open a file in read-only mode so that when someone does need to open it for modification, the read-only user is not blocking that? If there is not a way to do this native to Windows XP, is there a way to do it from the three applications that we use most, namely Word, Excel, Visio? All are 2003 versions. Thx. I used to save files like this in "read only recommended" mode. File|SaveAs|Tools|Ge...

Cannot upgrade to Word 2007 from Word 2002 as word crashes when tr
We have a word add in that programatically inserts an auto text table then adds rows to it. This works ok in Word 2002 but occasionally crashes in Word 2007 - this is not a consistent crash when we carry out the same operation it happens in no specific sequence. The only place we are able to track it down to is the auto text table inserting rows. Word itself is crashing. We are using COM AddIn written in VB6. Does anyone know of any key differences/issues between Word 2002 and Word 2007 that could cause such an error. Or is there a better way to attach a debugger/word debugg...

Encoded Word Documents
We have recently purchased a new pc with windows 7 and have installed the Microsoft Office software however when I got to open a PDF or word document from a webpage a file conversion pop up box comes up and asks for me to select the encoding that makes the document readable but none of them do. even the windows default doesn't work......

Chart does not print properly even if shows ok in page break previ
When I have a worksheet which includes a chart that is big in size and then I want it to print in one page then I use the fit to function in the page property window and select either a percentage or the number of pages (i.e, tall x wide). Once I print or do print preview the cells are shrunk so the fit to whatever size I requested but somehow the chart does not shrink. I looks as if it is an independent object. This is deceiving particularly in the page break preview which does show that my chart will fit inside my page but when I print it does something completely different. Exce...

Default DOCX file to open w/ Word 2007 and DOC to open with Word 2
Hi, I am trying to convert several hundred mail merge documents from Word 2003 to Word 2007. Currently, if I double click a document to open it, it opens in whichever version of Word was run last. What I would like, is for ..DOC files to open in 2003 and .DOCX files to open with 2007. I've tried to change the file types to do this, but can't make it 'stick'. Any suggestions?

limiting number of words in textbox in Word 2007
I created a Textbox in MS-Word 2007 by going to the Developer option->then chose Design Mode, then Legacy Tools->Text box Field. The MultiLine and Enterkey properties are True and the rest are default values. Is there a way I can limit the number of words to a certain number? I realize there is a way to limit the number of characters in the Textbox by the Maxlength value. Also, is it possible that a message appears when the user exceeds the maximum length informing him about that. Do I need to use VBA code or do the inbuilt features of word allow me to do that?
